Thanks to the diligent efforts of an intrepid local GCO member, the Forsyth County Commission is holding a Public Hearing at which it will have the first reading of an amendment to repeal Ordinance 102, which purports to ban the carry or possession of firearms in county parks by holders of Georgia Firearms Licenses. The county attorney will be presenting the amendment to the county commission. The Public Hearing begins this Thursday, November 2, 2006 at 5:00 p.m. Further information can be obtained here: http://www.forsythco.com/meetagend_details.asp?InfoID=817
There are only 8 counties with such an ordinance on the books (out of 159 counties in the state of Georgia). If you live in or near Forsyth County, please attend and encourage the county commission to do the right thing. Past experience dictates that this issue will not be reached promptly at 5:00 p.m., so if you can only show up late, show up!
